Freshman Required Programs

Georgia College & State University is requiring every member of their first year class to complete four online training modules before arriving on campus. The programs are AlcoholEdu, Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, Hazing Prevention, and Kognito- conversations that save lives.

AlcoholEdu is a non-opinionated, science-based course taken by hundreds of thousands of students each year. Whether or not you drink, AlcoholEdu empowers students to make well-informed decisions and provides some simple strategies to help keep you and your friends safe. We also promote student health and safety through the use of Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, a program that educates students about the elements of healthy relationships, the importance of sexual consent, and the role of bystanders in creating safe, healthy communities. Hazing Prevention is also a course that encourages bystander intervention while also giving students the opportunity to participate in university groups and organizations safely.

Kognito is an online interactive role playing scenario that allows users to interact with an avatar to have conversations regarding mental health and how to help someone having a mental health challenge.  Hazing Prevention 101 is a module that talks discusses what hazing is and how dangerous it is for students and for our campus, how to identify it, and how to report it. 

We feel all of these programs will provide a solid foundation to our new students on how to make healthier choices and how to help someone else when they need assistance. 

All four of these programs Will open July 18,2023 for incoming freshman.

All first-year, incoming Georgia College freshmen for the Fall 2023 semester must complete Part 1 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates, Hazing Prevention, and Kognito by August 16th, 2023.

Emails will be sent to GC student's bobcat accounts and will have all of the log on details. The programs can be accessed through GC Unify. After completion of Part 1 for AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention,  approximately 45 days later, you will receive an automated email indicating that it is time for you to complete Part 2 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates and the final survey. 

You must complete Part 2 of AlcoholEdu and Sexual Assault Prevention for Undergraduates by October 6th, 2023.
